On October the 3rd Lorena Viladés, project coordinator and one of the members of ANEFA’s projects team, made a special presentation on ROTATE at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros de Minas y Energía de Madrid (Energy and Mining School), an institution part of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. In her exposition Viladés highlighted the most innovative aspects of the project and showed the many ways in which the aggregates sector could develop sustainable and innovative strategies. This event was part of an innovation and technology transfer forum focused on women, science, and industry. It aimed to promote the creation of scientific-technological networks between women in the energy, environment, circular economy, and energy transition.
What is Rotate? ROTATE is a UE-funded project that aims to provide environmental solutions that will contribute to facilitate the generation of synergies between diverse industrial sectors related to mining and quarrying. ROTATE goals are the following: to boost efficiency in extractive sites, enhance circularity and waste valorisation, develop sustainable processes along the mining and quarrying productive chain, and improve social awareness about the importance of this strategic sector and its commitment to sustainability.
